Anne Lamott @ Uptown Theatre


Anne Lamott writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus.  But armed with self-effacing humor - she is laugh out-loud funny- and ruthless honesty, Lamott converts her subjects into enchantment. Actually, she writes about what most of us don't like ti think about. She wrote her novel to her father, the writer Kenneth Lamott when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. She has said that the book was "a present to someone I loved who was going to die." In all her novels she writes about loss - of loved ones and loss of personal control. She doesn't try to sugar coat the sadness, frustration and disappointment, but tells her stories with honesty, compassion and a pureness of voice. Anne Lamott does communicate her faith; in her books and in person, she lifts, comforts, and inspires, all while keeping us laughing.
